Texas Man’s Home Mistakenly Demolished by Fort Worth City Crew

Subscribe to Club 93.7 on

I don’t know how this mistake was made but a Texas man’s home was accidentally demolished by Fort Worth, Texas city crew.  The home was vacant but not supposed to get destroyed. 

David Underwood is the victim of the city’s mistake and now doesn’t have his home to move into.  The home belong to the family of Underwood by his grandmother which was passed down to him and his family.  David and his wife searched for the home and thought is had vanished according to KDFW,

“We came around Silver Creek looking for the lot and my wife said, ‘David, I think the house is gone,'” Underwood told the station. “We looked up there and sure enough, it’s gone!”

The ranched styled home had three bedrooms that sat near a lake.  The next door neighbors home was actually suppose to be demolished but the $82k valued house was destroyed.  The residents in the neighborhood tried to tell the crews not to destroy the home but they did not listen.

The City of Fort Worth, Texas issued this apology to the David and his wife.

On July 12, 2013, contractors demolished the wrong property on Watercress Drive. The property to be demolished should have been 9708 Watercress Dr. The property that was demolished was a vacant structure located at 9716 Watercress Drive.

I can’t believe this actually happened and I don’t know what David Underwood can do now.  Since the City of Fort Worth admitted to the mistake, I can foresee them to compensating him for his loss.  How would you react if you found out your home was accidentally demolished?  Leave your response in the comment section below.
